At last month’s New York Comic Con, Marvel teased a new weekly Daredevil miniseries set to follow up on the events of Charles Soule’s “Death of Daredevil” storyline. Now the publisher has revealed additional details about the forthcoming series written by Jed Mackay (Spider-Geddon #0) and illustrated by Danilo Beyruth (Ghost Rider, The Unbelievable Gwenpool), as well as the covers to all five issues by series cover artist Kyle Hotz (Man-Thing, The Hood).
Here’s how Marvel describes the series:
Daredevil is NO MORE! But the mayhem in Hell’s Kitchen waits for no one, and this January, a weekly series asks the question that everyone is grappling with – how DO you live in a world without Daredevil?
MAN WITHOUT FEAR brings together the heroes and villains of Hell’s Kitchen to face the chaos and disorder of a city without a Guardian Devil, including Foggy Nelson, the Defenders, the many loves of Matt Murdock, and Wilson Fisk, formerly the Kingpin of crime, now the Mayor of New York…
In the wake of the DEATH OF DAREDEVIL, Hell’s Kitchen will need a protector…and whoever he is, he’ll need to be A MAN WITHOUT FEAR!
The weekly title will launch on January 2nd, with a new issue every Wednesday that month.
Hotz’s striking, horror-infused covers feature some of the iconography most commonly associated with old hornhead, including a set of boxing gloves for Matt’s father, ‘Battlin’ Jack’ Murdock, and a few different crosses representative of the character’s Catholic background. The covers set a strong tone for the series right off the bat, and it’ll be interesting to see how that translates to the story and interior art from Mackay and Beyruth.
Check out the covers for the series below, and look for Man Without Fear #1-5 in January 2019.
